Yes, I do think a sexy list is in order.

That maple looks gorgeous! Since you asked, my vote is a Gibson-style jack mount. I really like the black hardware! For finish, it might look sharp with a dark (I'm thinking purplish-brown, maybe walnut or imbua) stain topped off with a clearcoat.

Thanks! Yeah, I might end up going with the jack in a Gibson-style position, although I think I'm stealing Neil's (absent mind) idea by recessing the jack. It's going to be flush mount, so no jack plate will be needed. I think I'm going to leave it completely natural with just clear coats and whatever else I need to do to finish it off (I don't know much about finishing...but the guys we're working with do). If anything, I'd just do a moderately light brown stain just to darken it up a little bit.

Thanks for the interest guys and shemales.

You should be inventive about the colors of the stain. I've seen some turn out REALLY badass that use like 3 or 4 different colors of stains to act as a graphics. I don't have any pictures, but one example is a guy that I respect with guitar playing wrote his band's name on his guitar with stain. It was impressive to say the least.

I've never finished anything before...I'm most likely going to leave it natural for the sake of it being the easiest type of finish. I could change my mind when it's all put together, but I might not. Also, it's the cheapest way. Since I'm spending a lot of money on this guitar, I don't want to risk giving it a bad finish. I might experiment on a cheaper guitar sometime in the future to try out different finishes, and I might refinish this guitar in the future as well.

Sorry, no real updates just yet (but sunday we're going in to finally get some work done! That means more pics! Also, when I get back from boston late friday night, my D-Sonic should be here...wooot)

I just wanted to ask, should I install a SPST temporary killswitch like Buckethead? (yes I know it's a bucket not a box, people who haven't seen the vid tell me all the time). I think it would be a pretty cool thing to have on there. Opinions?

Sorry for the bad quality of all of these pictures...it's 2:30am and there's no way I'm taking any more.
Alright, more teaser updates (with pics!). Just got back from Boston (got 1st runner up in the Battle for Berklee competition, great experience), and my D Sonic finally arrived while I was gone! So at 1:00am when my dad and I get back from the airport, I open it and take pictures and post them on UG.

We talked to the guys at the shop while on our trip, and we are going in next Saturday (for real this time...I don't expect any more delays.) Then we're going in the Sunday that is the day after, and possibly one more day if we don't get everything finished that we need to get done. Plans got changed because the piece of wood we were going to use had some checks and a few small wormholes, and we didn't want to take any risks.


CAUTION: YOU MUST BE 18 OR OLDER TO VIEW THIS MATERIAL!!


Here's the D Sonic in all it's glory. Oh, and my new volume pedal.


D Sonic 7...that's what it says


Here it is in the box


In the little plastic casing thing (btw whoever packaged the Blaze 7 was a ******...the D Sonic packing was much more organized.)


And one more just because I felt like taking the cliche picture.


Sorry I took so many pictures of one pickup.

By the way, does anybody know the "correct" way to position the Blaze (which coil on top, black or creme)? Thanks in advance.


-Joe
